Australia’s EdTech industry is booming with more than 15% of all Australian startups focused on education technology and innovation. Many of these companies are now finding international success or actively looking for new markets. The United States is a particularly appealing market due to its scale, language, cultural familiarity and openness to innovation. This is why EduGrowth, in partnership with the Australian Trade and Investment Commission, is delighted to facilitate a delegation of Australian EdTech companies deeply investigate the USA Market.
This year’s mission sees a delegation of 11 Australian EdTech companies participate in a comprehensive program to investigate key components of the US education market. In all the delegation will engage with 16 US companies, 3 Universities, 2 Government agencies and ultimately attend the ASU GSV Conference in San Diego.
Attracting more than 4,000 attendees from across the entire education spectrum, ASU GSV is arguably the world’s leading EdTech and Innovation conference. Along with school, university and education leaders, ASU GSV also attracts global leading venture capitalists, private equity companies and government leaders all focused on education technology and innovation.
EduGrowth is delighted to have a platform within this influential conference to build our global pathways for members. As Managing Director, I will share Australia’s education technology and innovation successes with delegates via speaking slots supported by Navitas Ventures and at a reception co-hosted with Austrade and the NSW Government.
The US is a key market for education technology and innovation globally. If you have aspirations for taking your business to the US, then a trade mission with EduGrowth is a quick method of creating connection, collaboration and acceleration opportunities. Consider adding next year’s mission to your schedule.
